Alright I give up.Whats the secret to using this slimy,sticky stuff? Seems like I wind up with more of it stuck to my hands than the piece I'm working on! Am I suppose to let it set for awhile before using it?Or maybe coat my hands with oil? Any enlightenment would be most welcome.

mix a little borax with it to tighten it up.


Leave the bag open a day or so.

Just leave it open a few days and it will be fine.
